Partner Laurence D. Laufer Quoted in Queens TimesLedger

February 15, 2014

Laurence D. Laufer, Director of the firm’s Corporate Political Activity Law Practice Group and its New York City office, commented in the TimesLedger newspaper on the case of former southeast Queens City Council candidate Ricardo Brown and his unusually large campaign debt. “’He’s facing two types of consequences at a minimum. One is the skepticism over whether these are actually campaign related liabilities, and the Campaign Finance Board would likely ask for proof that demonstrates these are campaign related,’ Laufer said. ‘And if he can’t show they’re campaign related he could be charged with false reporting.’”
